GNAA airlift Grand National jockey Ryan Mania from Hexham races

Ryan was injured today in the 3.10 at Hexham - and airlifted to the RVI by the Great North Air Ambulance. He has neck and back injuries, the extent of which are unknown. This fall took place less than 24 hours after his triumph at Liverpool in the Grand National. Full story here:

Please give generously to the GNAA - last summer we raised over £2000 online and a further £1000+ when I walked The Pennine Way from Derbyshire to Scotland: you can still donate here:

This charity is entirely funded by donations, and the team in the air and the support team on the ground do a fantastic job. There are many great charities out there, but this one is the one of the best. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ryan and his family.
